A birthday classic: three layers of yellow cake frosted with chocolate buttercream and topped with rainbow sprinkles.
I’m on the hunt for the perfect birthday cake. Alex has a BIG birthday coming up this summer. He’s turning 30! On my eve of my 30th birthday, he proposed to me at Walt Disney World. Now, I feel compelled to do something over the top for him. Ideally I would love to plan an out of town adventure. Because of our conflicting schedules traveling together isn’t plausible this summer. Perhaps, I should present him with three different cakes to celebrate three decades of life? YES. That’s what I’m going to do.
When it comes to cakes, Alex will eat them all. However, his top three favorite cake flavors are chocolate yellow cake, chocolate peanut butter, and everything coconut. This chocolate cake with peanut butter frosting I used to make his Dodgers Baseball Cap Cake a few years ago is my go-to chocolate pb recipe. This coconut cake is a family favorite. But when it comes to chocolate yellow cake…I have yet to find the one.
